Clemson got more of a battle as a 33 point favorite against Boston College than was expected. The Tigers didn’t put the Eagles away until the fourth quarter, but put them away they did to get to 4-0 and maintain their #2 ranking in the polls. The Tigers are seven point favorites for this week’s game at Virginia Tech.
Notes from Dabo Swinney conference call:
- Proud of his team, long way from being perfect, thought BC played well, thinks best football is in front. Loved how they finished game.
- Choice has sore ankle, Mullen in concussion protocol, Fields has a glut pull, should get Greenlee back this week.
- Not real happy with pursuit to the ball in some cases on defense.
- Pleased with the rushing game, third down conversions, good in red zone.
- AJ Terrell would be next up at corner and has a lot of confidence in him.
- Thinks Bryant got a little frustrated early and couple of times he held the ball too long but he played thru it and settled in.
- Fortunate to win in 2011 in Blacksburg on a cold, rainy night, one of the best environments in college football.
